Meet Ducati’s Sixty2: The 400cc roadster for 2016
This might be the newest member of the Scrambler family, but according to Ducati’s biggest brass we’ve got another Italian Scrambler still to come in 2016!
Ducati’s biggest bike coming for 2016 isn’t the largest capacity motorcycle in the range, but this 400cc small Scrambler called the Sixty2.
The Scrambler Sixty2 is a smaller, more retro version of the current 803cc L-twin bike and has a more retro feel to it thanks to the revised cosmetics and longer, flatter petrol tank.
Ducati launched the Sixty2 and a flattracker, a revised look variant of the bigger bike, at the Milan show and said that the small, new bike will sell for £6450 and the flat-tracker (which is basically a dressed-up current Scrambler 800 with special livery, seat cover, side panel, machined component, handlebars and a Full Throttle exhaust which includes a Termignoni slip-on can) will cost £8995.
But that’s not all because more variants on the retro-styled bike have been promised for the near future, with one being launched later THIS year.
Ducati boss Claudio Domenicali said: “There will be more Scramblers in the future, we will expand the Scrambler brand up, down and side-by-side.”
The new bike is an A2 licence compliant 399cc, air-cooled V-twin that kicks out 41bhp, 25.3ft-lb of torque and has a bore and stroke of 72mm x 49mm. It weighs 167kg dry (183kg wet), 14 litre fuel tank (ed) retro-styled bike with 41mm Showa front forks.
The bike will come in three colours; orange, silver/turqoise and black. The seat height is 770, 790 (standard height) or 810mm depending on what you want and the bike comes with ABS as standard.
Domenicali added: “We actually want to make the Scrambler more accessible.”
